Hello,

There are several factors for that code to come on. It could be as simple as a lose or defective gas cap. It could also be a leak anywhere in the evaporative system, which could include the fuel tank or a faulty hose.
Have you made sure that your gas cap is on properly? Have you tried clearing the code?

Here is a video showing how to clear the code:

Please let me know if you have any questions.
